Happy Halloween!

Halloween this year was fantastic. The weather was clear, and we were finally healthy enough to go out. NomiAnn and Papa Kay drove all the way from Nebraska to trick-or-treat with us, and we had a great time.

I may be kind of partial, but the cutest trick-or-treaters were:

A Pink Princess

A Pink Poodle

and A Pink and Gray Mouse

Of course, our adorable little mouse doubled as a green dinosaur being held by a mad scientist.

Here are our trick-or-treaters with the mad scientist and her husband, the glad scientist.

And here are the merry munchkins with some very happy grandparents. Tremendous kudos go out to NomiAnn who made the amazing princess and poodle costumes. Thanks Mom! You're the best.

Out on the search for goodies.

The best part of Halloween--sorting through the loot.

Eli was festive, even beneath his costume.

Here's one last pic of Eli--on top of the kitchen table, of course! Strangely enough, this has become a nightly ritual at our house. We've discovered that our grumpy little man gazes contently if we set him in the middle of the action. Jason keeps threatening to put him on a platter and stick an apple in his mouth! I can only imagine what the neighbors must think...

Hope everyone else's Halloween was happy as well!

Tricks! Treats! You have the cutest kids, ever. ;)

I love the costumes! Pink looks so good on your girls! We would've loved to see you at our ward party but we didn't get nearly as good of weather as you did...

I can't believe your mom made those costumes! I thought the princess one was definitely store-bought. The poodle was SO original and cute! I loved it!

I think the lady in the red shirt and gray coat dressed as Mom and taking the kids around from house to house was the cutest of all...

I was thinking that the princess costume, with the hat and cloak, was especially darling, and that I had never seen one like that.

Now I know why. Those are amazing costumes!

PS Cute comment Jason. Serious husband brownie points there.
